“True Believers” by Kurt Anderson

Kurt Anderson’s extravagant tale combines cultural history with a riveting political mystery a la Graham Greene. It is told in the form of a memoir by celebrated attorney Karen Hollander, now in her sixties. In junior high, Karen and her best friends Alex and Chuck re-enact James Bond spy missions with toy weapons and imaginary enemies. As young adults in the late sixties, they conspire against a cold war villain who is all-too-real. By the time her book is about to be published, Chuck has died. Alex remains to try and stop Karen from revealing their shocking 40-year-old secret. Karen proves to be a brilliant, witty heroine who, despite her confession, will charm you.
